Abstract

A digital detector for monitoring laser output energy that has been used successfully for accurate collection of lidar data is presented. The detector includes both an optical system to sample laser pulses and electronic circuitry to provide a digitized electronic output proportional to the energy in the sampled light pulses. Test results show that the detector system is capable of monitoring lidar relative output energy to within 1%.
